EDITOR’S NOTE: Aldi sold this heater again in February of 2022 for $26.99 and in November of 2020 for $24.99.
Aldi often ventures into the arena of home climate control with products such as portable and window air conditioning units, humidifiers, and a variety of heaters.
One heater Aldi sells is the Easy Home 360° Surround Heater, which looks a lot like a name-brand Honeywell heater but costs about $5 less. Surround heaters are unique in that they put out heat in all directions, as opposed to traditional fan heaters than blow warm air in just one direction.
What We Know:
The Easy Home 360° Surround Heater sold for $24.99 in 2019.
Aldi sold the same 360° Surround Heater for $19.99 in 2018 and for $24.99 in 2017.
Aldi has sold other types of heaters in a range of prices through the years as well, including flame effect heaters, parabolic radiant heaters with oscillation, fan heaters, oscillating ceramic tower heaters, and wall outlet ceramic space heaters.
The 2019 Easy Home 360° Surround Heater features include:
- Two temperature settings plus fan-only control
- Automatic shutoff if tipped over
- For medium size rooms of approximately 300 square feet
- Surround heat technology for all-around warmth
- Automatic overheat sensor
- Easy grip handle
The 2018 Easy Home 360° Surround Heater came with a two-year warranty serviced by the home appliance company Midea. We don’t have details on the 2019 heater, but we assume it will have a similar warranty package.
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t tried Aldi’s Easy Home 360° Surround Heater, so we don’t know how well it works. We also don’t know specifics about any warranty the heater may come with.
Do you have experience with the Easy Home 360° Surround Heater? Share your thoughts in the comments.
I purchase one and from what I can tell ,most of the heat comes from the from. A little heat trickles from the sides and back. So the 360 claim is deceptive but as long as you are facing the front it seems to heat well
Thanks, Brian. I just purchased one and was hoping for some reviews…so I sure appreciate yours!
I purchased this heater this past November 2020 and have used it just about every evening since. It did a great job heating up in the area near where I sit to read and watch tv. Last night my dog tripped on the electrical cord, disconnecting it from a multi electric socket. When I went to go plug it back in I noticed immediately that the electric plug was VERY hot. I plugged it in an extension cord after a little while. When I checked on the outlet it was again VERY hot. I’m afraid to use it now. I wonder if it could start an electrical fire.
Yes if it is hot it can start a fire.
I meant to say that when I checked on it again the plug was VERY hot.
I purchased this heater in oct 2019. It started overheating and smoking in 2020. I called then but couldn’t get ahold of anyone, I finally called again in 2021 and was told it only has a 1 year warranty, while the website says 2 years. I do not recommend this heater.
I recently purchased the Aldi EasyHome 360 portable heater less than a week ago. I only started to use it 4 days ago when the 1st night it did great, even had to wake up few times to turn off in my room. The next day I had it on and few mins later the power in my room went out, tripped the breaker for the room it was in. I let it cool because i noticed when I unplugged the metal prongs (plug) were extremely hot. I had it plugged into a wall extension where you can plug 5 other things. So I plugged it directly into the wall and ran great last night. But just now I had it on just plugged it into another part of the room directly into the outlet and it was on good 30 mins when it shut off on me for no reason. The power still on in my room. Not sure what it going on but now I am scared to use it. Could it be the heater or the breaker switch to my room?
